The important viral, protozoal and bacterial diseases of wild African ruminants are reviewed. Special
attention is paid to the epidemiological factors that determine the role played by these animals in the
transmission of diseases to domestic stock. Examples of the converse situation where livestock serve
as a source of infection for wild ruminants are also given.
